“Mula sa wikang Asi ng Romblon, may dalawang kahulugan ang salitang agwánta: pagtitiis sa panahon ng krisis at paghinto muna sa paghila ng lambat kapag nangingisda. Natatangi ang panahong ito sa kasaysayan ng mundo, lahat ay nagtitiis at humihinto sa nakagawian at nakasanayan upang malabanan ang pandemyang Covid19,” UST SSLAS said.
“Bahagi ng labang ito ang mga tagasalin bilang pangunahing ahente ng epektibong komunikasyon at palitang pangkultura kaugnay ng pagsasaling pangkrisis. Kaya sa pamamagitan ng UST Linggo ng Salin 2020, patuloy na palalawakin ang pagtalakay sa papel ng mga tagasaling Filipino sa pagharap sa mga hamon ng pagtuturo at pagsasalin sa panahon ng pandemya,” it added.
